This is a historic building that has been converted into hotel space, with lavish attention to retaining the building's original detail. The lobbies are impressive and the place exudes the confidence of a bygone era in American capitalism. The room we had, an Expedia "special," was well equipped and comfortable. It was smaller than a room would be in a 3rd tier hotel, but had a wonderful view of the city. The only real drawback was the door to the bathroom. It is a sliding door that covers, but does not fit into, the opening, which means it provides minimal privacy. The one in our room was off the track when we first came in (if my husband hadn't been there I would have been trapped in the bathroom) but the hotel staff responded quickly and successfully to our call.
Note to travelers: There ARE coffee machines, you just have to ask for them. The hotel does not routinely place them in the room.
Although our room was a little tight, it was very clean, well appointed, and secure. Decor was interesting because of local history (graffiti and local celebrities are featured) The hotel is on an intersection so traffic noise is to be expected since Baltimore is a busy city. The Inner Harbor is easily walkable and is accessible to public transportation. We really enjoyed our 2 night stay and would return without question.

"Excellent stay 2 blocks from the Baltimore Harbour"
We needed a hotel with which to base our Baltimore vacation. The RL Baltimore Inner Harbor fit that need perfectly. Only 2 blocks from the Inner Harbor, the hotel could not have been in a better location. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful throughout. We had our kids with us, and the staff was very warm and friendly around them... something that we've found rare of hotels. We enjoyed interacting and joking with staff throughout our stay. The room was space efficient, which some will take as small, but gave us all the room that we needed without our tripping over top of each other. The bed and pull down trundle were very comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious with a very large tile shower. There is no doubt that we'll consider the RL Baltimore Inner Harbor as our first choice on our next trip to Baltimore for a weekend trip. We would recommend to anyone.
Except for unpleasant check-in lady (only saw her initially-- all other personal couldn't have been more pleasant), hotel was wonderful in all aspects (intimate feeling of a boutique hotel, comfortable room, bathroom with Jacuzzi, handsome, atmospheric surroundings-- even our dog liked her experience!), and the breakfast was excellent and reasonably priced. Some rooms have a great view of adjacent park and Washington Monument.
"Anxiety-free hotel near Johns Hopkins Hospital. "
Comfortable, quiet, and provided the peace needed before and after hospital exam. Surprisingly easy to get to off highway 83 north. Staff cordial and very helpful. Was given fruit for the road, since I left before breakfast was served (Saturday). Overall, better than expected. Hope to stay there again if another J Hopkins visit is necessary. Dependable shuttle—important.
This is an older building, and it shows. The room was small, but clean and quiet. The hotel had the basics, including a small room in the basement with a treadmill and exercise bike, but nothing fancy. However, the price was right, and it was an easy walk from the convention center. I was at meetings all day, and needed nothing more than a place to sleep and shower, so it met all my needs perfectly. My only complaint was that the WIFI access was painfully slow, so if you need to do significant work on the internet, and don't have your own WIFI access point, you don't want to stay there.

This jewel of a hotel is so impeccably clean. The staff in the bar/lounge/restaurant are incredibly friendly and awesome. Scott was our server for a long leisurely evening and I felt like I was in Paris (because the service was not rushed and he was there when we needed him but not intrusive). The most notable thing is how impeccably clean the entire facility is. And comfortable. And very stylish. Aveda products in the bathroom - very nice. Quiet clean smelling and running climate control too. They had it all.
Avoid rooms directly across from the elevator. Unless you are part of the group party. The place was very busy and my room was pretty noisy all night long from a wedding party coming and going. That is my only regret and the staff can't control peoples behavior on that one. The bed however was delicious and I was able to snuggle down back to sleep.
Definitely a lovely place to stay. And I am pretty much a hotel snob.
Really crappy neighborhood
Scary walk to anywhere
No beer/wine for sale anywhere nearby!
No shuttle from airport
Shuttle to convention center & harbor
Lobby is quite beautiful
Older but clean rooms. Staff were friendly. Reasonable prices, good access to the Convention Center and Camden Yards. You can get to the Convention Center through the Hilton a block south of here, which was really nice because it rained buckets the whole time. It's across the street from a fire station, so you might get woken up. They didn't get called out too often when I was there. Not many restaurants in this neighborhood; I generally dined around the inner harbor a half mile east of here.
Johns Hopkins University occupies north Baltimore. To the south, the National Aquarium in Baltimore is Maryland’s most popular attraction. Oriole Park at Camden Yards revels in baseball’s past with a statue of Baltimore’s own Babe Ruth. Lexington Market offers an authentic glimpse and taste of Baltimore culture. The B & O Railroad Museum depicts the origins of mass transit in America.
